Insulin Molecule 3D Jsmol

Insulin is a polypeptide hormone produced by pancreatic islet β cells that is primarily responsible for regulation of blood glucose and storage of carbohydrates and lipids. Type 1 diabetes is due to inadequate production of insulin caused by destruction and loss of insulin producing pancreatic islet β cells. Type 2 diabetes is due to relative insulin resistance. It is considered to be the main anabolic hormone of the body.
